    This story was complex and skillfully written; not to say slightly difficult to follow at first, which I appreciate. It wasn't all laid out for you but as details came together, it formed into a well-told and powerful story. I feel like I got my money's worth out of this issue with all the dialogue and the amazing artwork. Splashy colors and so many characters on each page, I felt like this was the best three bucks I spent this week. Read Full Review

    I havent checked the sales figures in a while, but I hope Red Robin is somewhere in the mid-range of sales, because I want to be able to keep reading this book. Month after month, DC delivers adventure and spills and turns in Red Robin. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 15, 2011

    Fans of Red Robin (YUMMM... there I said, are you happy now?) will have already picked up this issue, and for the rest, Red Robin #19 might be worth checking out. The structure of the story is fine, and the art really works, but the real events of the issue could have been told in about six pages. This isn't a terrible issue, but it certainly isn't one of the better stories we've seen so far. It's an average read, and earns an average rating of 2.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jan 16, 2011

    "Red Robin" #19 is an entertaining comic when looked at on a scene-by-scene basis, though some scenes are weighed down with exposition. As a whole comic, it never feels consequential. Part of that seems to be the plot, and the rest is execution. If this plot is supposed to matter, it should come across as such. Still, if you like light, action-based superhero comics with a little bit of silly fun thrown in, this makes for a good read. Read Full Review
